What.If.Cannabis.Cured.Cancer?

 

Could the chemicals found in marijuana prevent and even heal several deadly cancers? Discover the truth about this ancient medicine as world-renowned scientists in the field of cannabinoid research illustrate their truly mind-blowing discoveries.

What if Cannabis Cured Cancer explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the endocannabinoids inside us, along with any cannabinoids we ingest, fit together like a key in a lock.

Thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body's healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis, and perhaps even the future of medicine.

What If Cannabis Cured Cancer summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana and brings to light a host of recent findings that have potentially game-changing implications for the future of marijuana as a medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor Peter Coyote.

Car.Built.From.Hemp

 

Kestrel, The First Road Ready Car Built Out Of Hemp!
Kestrel, The First Road Ready Car Built Out Of Hemp!
Marijuana's fibrous cousin hemp has a long history with auto makers. in 1941 Henry Ford unveiled a car body made primarily out of organic fibers, hemp included.

Seventy years later, the world's first production-ready biocomposite electric car-with hemp as the "bio"-will finally hit the streets.



'As a structural material, hemp is about the best.' - Nathan Armstrong, Motive Industries Inc.

The Kestrel, a three-door hatchback, is made of a "hemp composite as strong as the fiberglass in boats, yet incredibly lightweight," A comparably sized Ford Fusion weighs 3,720 pounds, the Kestrel will be just 2,500 pounds with the battery. This may mean a fuel-efficiency increase of 25 to 30 percent.The hemp makes the biocomposite's flexibility similar to the carbon fiber used in racecars.

The Kestrel cars will be built with the help of polytechnic schools in Alberta, Quebec and Toronto. The hemp is being grown in Vegreville, Alta. It will be powered by a motor made by Boucherville, Que.-based TM4 Electrodynamic Systems.

"Plus, it's illegal to grow it in the U.S., so it actually gives Canada a bit of a market advantage," Armstrong added. The U.S. does allow the import of processed hemp.

Kestrel Specifications: From Motive Industries
Architecture: Compact 4 passengers, 3 doors
Drive train: Electric, single speed
Vehicle weight: 850kg
Top speed: 135 km/h
Range: 160km

Seattle.Times.Says.Legalize.It.!

 

The Seattle Times is calling for the Washington Legislature to legalize marijuana. In an editorial for Sunday's editions, the newspaper says the time has come for the states to lead a push against federal prohibition. The editorial was posted Friday on The Times' website. (The Seattle Times is the largest daily newspaper in Washington state.)

The newspaper endorses state House Bill 1550, which would legalize marijuana and sell it through state liquor stores to customers over 21 who consume it in private. Times Editorial Page Editor and Associate Publisher Ryan Blethen says the newspaper understands that "a good number of citizens may disagree with our call on this."

The Times editorial board says the prohibition of marijuana has not worked and wastes the resources of the police, the courts and the jails. The editorial suggests it is better to legalize pot, regulate it and tax it.

"MARIJUANA prohibition is more than a practical failure; it has been a misuse of both taxpayer dollars and the government's authority over the people."

"It is critical that we get these details right. Ending marijuana prohibition isn't a panacea, but it's a necessary step in the right direction, and the specifics of a rational regulatory system for marijuana are important."

"Ending marijuana prohibition is pro-law enforcement because it would enhance the legitimacy of our laws and law enforcement. As Albert Einstein said of Prohibition in 1921, "Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced."

"Even if marijuana remains illegal under federal law, it is still time for Washington state to act. As with alcohol prohibition, collective action by the states will help us end the federal marijuana prohibition and transition to a rational and functional system for regulating and taxing marijuana. The state of Washington should not use the continued existence of the federal prohibition as an excuse for leaving our misguided and wasteful state prohibition system in place."

Death.Sentence

 

 

Peter Davy
My name is Peter Davy and I am 51 years old. I am a Medical Cannabis user and have had cancer for 10 years. My partner has advanced Multiple Sclerosis and I am her 24-hour caregiver. She is dying and will die without me.

I have cultivated cannabis for medical purposes and extensively researched the breeding of rare cannabis strains for these specific medical conditions. On February 15th, 2011 I pleaded guilty in Timaru Court (New Zealand) to cultivation of cannabis and associated charges. The judge told me to expect a prison sentence on March 16th when I go up for sentencing

I want to make it clear that I will be going on a hunger strike the moment I am given a prison sentence and I absolutely do not want to be force fed under any circumstances. I will also be refusing all cancer medication. I am 100% committed to continuing with a hunger strike until I am dead. This is about Medical Marijuana, a police force that continually lies to make themselves look good, and the complete lack of empathy and compassion in our present justice system..

IRS.Audits.Dispensaries

 

The IRS is auditing marijuana dispensaries in California, and advocates have called for a change in federal laws.

The sale of medical marijuana is legal under state law, but illegal under federal law, and cannabis collectives say there is a problem because of the way they are being treated by the IRS.

Tax code 280-E does not allow drug trafficking organizations to deduct business expenses.

"If 280-E were applied strictly, we would not be allowed to deduct our rent, our payroll or any of the other normal and usual expenses that other businesses deduct," said Steve DeAngelo, Harborside Health Center.

Attorney Henry Wykowski is representing various dispensaries that are being audited, and he said 280-E was created in the 80s to go after drug lords, and it should be updated.

"What the California dispensaries are engaged in is not trafficking," Wykowski said. "They're engaged in a legal activity that benefits their patients."


Several members of congress have drafted a letter to the IRS, asking it to allow dispensaries to deduct business expenses and not treat the organizations as drug traffickers.

"I hope that what's going on is that the IRS is making a good faith attempt to understand our industry and to tax us like any other businesses would be taxed," DeAngelo said. "And I'm in support of that. We want to pay our fair share of taxes." Read the full story on THC Finder

WHY ARE SO MANY PROFESSIONAL WOMEN SMOKING WEED??? Video from the Today Show.



They've got killer careers and enviable social lives. They're also major potheads. Why are so many smart, successful women lighting up in their off-hours? and what are they putting on the line?

"I hate the term pothead-it connotes that I'm high 24/7, which I'm not," Pelham says, wincing. "I don't need it to get through my day. I just enjoy it when my day is over." Her nightly ritual costs only $50 a month, a pittance compared with the cost of her monthly gym membership or a Saturday night out with her fiancé, an investment banker, who occasionally smokes with her. At 5'4", slim and athletic-she ran three miles a day while in law school-Pelham insists that pot is the ideal antidote to a hairy workday: It never induces a post-happy-hour hangover and, unlike the Xanax a doctor once prescribed for her anxiety, never leaves her groggy or numb. "Look, every female attorney I know has some vice or another," Pelham shrugs, tucking her long brown hair behind her ears, her 3-carat cushion-cut engagement ring catching the light. "It's really not a big deal."

Most of us know someone like Jennifer Pelham, a balls-to-the-wall career animal whose idea of decompressing after a grueling day isn't a glass of Chardonnay but a toke (or three) of marijuana-not just every now and again, but on a regular basis-the type who stashes a pack of E-Z Wider rolling paper in the silverware drawer or keeps a pipe at the ready next to a pile of bills. According to a recent study by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an estimated 8 million American women smoked up in the past year-a lowball figure that reflects only those willing to cop to it. Among them is the upper-middle-class Pottery Barn set: One in five women who admitted to indulging in the previous month lives in a household earning more than $75,000 a year. They cut a wide swath across the professional spectrum, including lawyers, editors, insurance agents, TV producers, and financial biggies, looking nothing like the blotto hippie teens of Dazed and Confused or the unemployed, out-of-shape schlubsters who are a staple of the Judd Apatow canon. By all outward appearances, they are card-carrying, type A workaholics who just happen to prefer kicking back with a blunt instead of a bottle.

"I love to have a glass of wine now and again, but going out and downing sugary cocktails isn't fun for me. And drinking is so much more expensive," says Debbie Schwartz, a 28-year-old reality-show production manager who recently moved to New York from Los Angeles. Her job is relentless-15-hour days spent coordinating a million moving pieces, managing expenses, setting production schedules, and mollifying gimme-gimme talent. Her company just slashed her budget in half, which has left Schwartz scrambling to cut costs so that she won't have to lay off employees. After work, she can't think of anything she'd rather not do than throw on a pair of heels and some makeup to hit the local bars. "I'll go to the gym for an hour, then come back home and smoke a joint while I listen to jazz and read a book-I just finished The Fountainhead. It's my moment for myself before I have to get up and do it all over again tomorrow. It's my bubble bath," Schwartz explains. She doesn't keep her illicit habit under wraps, either. There's no need, since several people in her office use the same "dealer"-a colleague who takes orders for their department.

If Schwartz's example proves anything, it's how ridiculously easy it is to procure pot these days. In some cities, it's as simple as ordering a pizza, delivered right to the door.

Sound reckless? Not when you consider that marijuana has already been decriminalized in 13 states. In cities like Boston and Denver, small-time pot busts are minor offenses on a par with parking violations; first-time offenders earn a token fine-$100 or so-and a talking-to from law enforcement. In California, where the distribution of marijuana for medicinal purposes was legalized in 1996, some 31,000 residents carry cards that make purchasing locally grown weed from any of the state's estimated 500 dispensaries as easy as filling a prescription at the local pharmacy. Abuse of the system is rife: "Everybody has a friend who has a card," says Gabrielle Doron, a 29-year-old L.A.-based event planner. "My friend will call me up and say, 'I'm going to the store, you want anything?' It's just not very hard to get."

Nor does getting high carry the same social stigma it did in the Reagan-era "Just Say No" heyday-back when smoking a joint was the de rigueur "special episode" of countless family-friendly sitcoms. "When I was in high school, there were certain behaviors associated with pot: promiscuity, not being career-minded, not wanting a relationship," says Schwartz. "My mom told me that people would lace pot with PCP and that I'd get hooked, or that I'd get the munchies and get fat." All baloney, Schwartz learned once she became a bona fide pothead eight years ago. She even managed to drop 25 pounds despite smoking regularly. Her secret: She eats a healthy meal right before she smokes, which seems to curb her appetite. "The munchies are absolutely something you don't have to get into," Schwartz maintains. "Of course, the desire to eat is always there. But even when I'm not smoking, I still want a cupcake."

Another myth debunked by pantsuit-clad pot lovers: that devotees hole up in their apartments in a thick cannabis stupor, blowing off friends and social commitments. "I almost never smoke alone," says 28-year-old Gina Bridges, a grants administrator for a Seattle-based nonprofit. Bridges sometimes hosts low-key dinner parties with her husband and friends, punctuated by dessert and bong hits. (She stopped smoking when she recently became pregnant.) "Alcohol makes you feel more social, but weed works in a different way. You're quieter, more contemplative. My friends and I get more in depth about specific issues," she says. What's more, Bridges says sex was much better when she was high, helping her to shed her inhibitions. "Sometimes I'd wonder, Am I doing the right thing? Am I getting him off? When I smoke, it's all about me. I'm not worried so much about what he's thinking. And it helps him enjoy it more, too, because I'm not psyching myself out," she says.

Last year, Rachel Murphy, a 36-year-old entertainment industry publicist in New York and mother of a toddler, temporarily gave up her nightly weed habit a week before taking a required urine test to secure a life-insurance policy. (She only smokes once her daughter is in bed.) Hours after the exam, she lit up. Two days later, the clinic called to say there was a glitch in the test (unrelated to drugs) and that she would have to retake it. "I was totally back on this bandwagon of smoking a lot, and I didn't want to be bothered to have to do this again," Murphy says. With three days until the test, she frantically called her cousin, an insurance agent herself, who advised Murphy to buy Ready Clean, a 16-ounce fruit punch that claims to flush out the THC in urine if ingested within 48 hours of a drug test. Rachel paid $50 and had the drink overnighted. "My husband was standing over me the morning of the test saying, 'Drink! Drink! Chug it!' I was like, 'I can't drink that fast.' He said, 'Rachel, this is serious shit. We need life insurance-we have a baby-and we can't get it because my wife smokes pot?'" One agonizing week later, Murphy got the word that she'd passed her urine test. Read the Full Article on Marie Claire

Mom.In.Jail

 

Because of $31 in marijuana sales, Patricia Marilyn Spottedcrow is now serving 10 years in prison, has been taken away from her four young children and husband, and has ended her work in nursing homes. On Dec. 31, 2009, Spottedcrow and her mother, Delita Starr, 50, sold a "dime bag" of marijuana to a police informant at Starr's home in Kingfisher, court records state. Two weeks later, the same informant returned and bought $20 of marijuana from Spottedcrow. The two women were arrested for drug distribution and because Spottedcrow's children were in the home, an additional charge of possession of a dangerous substance in the presence of a minor was added.

Starr received a 30-year suspended sentence with no incarceration, but five years of drug and alcohol assessments. Spottedcrow was sentenced to 10 years in prison for distribution and two years for possession, to run concurrently. She will be up for parole in 2014. Starr claims the cases have been "blown out of proportion" by lawmen and criticizes the sentences as stiff. "It shocked me and we cried for days," she said. In addition, Starr was fined $8,600 and Spottedcrow $2,740.

When Spottedcrow was taken to jail after her sentencing, she had marijuana in her jacket. She pleaded guilty to that additional charge Jan. 24 and was sentenced to two years in prison and fined nearly $1,300. That sentence also will run concurrent with her other conviction. Spottedcrow has four children - ages 9, 4, 3 and 1 - and is determined to keep her 8-year, common-law marriage intact. "It's been really hard on my husband," she said. "I know a lot of things can happen, but he'll always have my back and be there."

"I missed my daughter's fourth birthday, and I'll miss her fifth one too. My other daughter just started talking, and I'm not there to hear her," Spottedcrow said. "My baby woke up ... and doesn't know where her mommy is. This is the hardest thing to do, and know I can't do anything about it. I just have to focus on myself and take it day-to-day and plan for going home. I will want to see my kids at some point. I'm trying to take this slow. I can't get depressed about it."

Oklahoma's two prisons for women - the maximum-security Mabel Bassett in McLoud and minimum-security Eddie Warrior in Taft - housed 2,622 prisoners last year. Of those, 48 percent are serving time for nonviolent drug offenses and 22 percent for other nonviolent offenses such as embezzlement and forgery. Of the 1,393 women received by Oklahoma prisons last year, 78 percent were identified by DOC as minimal public safety threats. Read the full story on NewsOk

CNBC.Marijuana.Inc.

 

Inside America's Pot Industry America's marijuana industry is thriving and raking in what's estimated to be tens of billions of dollars nationwide.

This is a documentary called 'Marijuana Inc.' running on CNBC... it's sweet that the mainstream media is talking about marijuana in more positive ways. This was definitely not happening 10 or 15 years ago :]

While it may not be traded on Wall Street any time soon, marijuana has become a booming cash crop. CNBC's Trish Regan goes behind the scenes to explore the inner workings of this secretive industry, focusing on Northern California's "Emerald Triangle," now the marijuana capital of the U.S. In this scenic pocket of America, the pot business, much of it legal under state law, now makes up as much as two-thirds of the local economy.

The.Union

 

The Union - The Business Behind Getting High - A very well built documentary about cannabis and drug prohibition. Does the drug prohibition work? Have a look and think for yourself. Professionals (lawyers, law-enforcers, teachers, scientists etc) speak out!
Ever wonder what British Columbia's most profitable industries are? Logging? Fishing? Tourism? Ever think to include marijuana? If you haven't, think again. No longer a hobby for the stereotypical hippie culture of the '60s, BC's illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into an unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as 'The Union'. Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually, The Union's roots stretch far and wide. With up to 85% of all 'BC Bud' being exported to the United States, the BC marijuana trade has become an international issue with consequences that extend far beyond our borders.

When record profits are to be made, who are the players, and when do their motives become questionable?
- Why is marijuana illegal?
- What health risks do we really face?
- Does prohibition work?
- What would happen if we taxed it?
- Medicine, paper, fuel, textiles, food, etc. Are we missing something?

Follow filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he dives head first into Canada's most socially acceptable illegal activity. Along the way, Adam demystifies the underground market and brings to light how such a large industry can function while remaining illegal. By interviewing experts from around the globe, including growers, clippers, police officers, criminologists, economists, medical doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business behind getting high. Nobody's innocent in this exploration of an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal. Join Adam Scorgie as he unravels the mystery of The Union.

NORML Working to Reform Marijuana Laws

NORML is a nonprofit, public-interest lobby that for more than 30 years has provided a voice for those Americans who oppose marijuana prohibition. We represent the interests of the tens of millions of Americans who smoke marijuana responsibly and believe the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana should no longer be a crime.

NORML supports the removal of all criminal penalties for the private possession and responsible use of marijuana by adults, including the cultivation for personal use, and the casual nonprofit transfers of small amounts. This model, similar to that recommended to Congress by President Nixon's esteemed Shafer Commission in 1972, is called "decriminalization."

NORML additionally supports the development of a legally controlled market for marijuana, where consumers could purchase it from a safe, legal and regulated source. This model is referred to as "legalization."

NORML believes that marijuana smoking is not for kids and should only be used responsibly by adults. As with alcohol consumption, it must never be an excuse for misconduct or other bad behavior. Driving or operating heavy equipment while impaired from marijuana should be prohibited.

NORML strongly supports the right of patients to use marijuana as a medicine when their physician recommends it to relieve pain and suffering. NORML has advocated for the legal use of medicinal marijuana since 1972.

Lastly, NORML supports the right of farmers to commercially cultivate the non-psychoactive strain of cannabis known as hemp for industrial purposes, such as food and fiber production.

Matt.Mernagh

 

Matt Mernagh Reviews, News, and Views About Matt: Weighing only a hundred pounds, Cannabis Champion of the World, writer, activist, entertainer, Matt Mernagh is actually Canada's strongest stoner. He survived a near death seizure that resulted in a thirteen day hospital stay and required six months of extensive thrice weekly physiotherapy. Adding to his legend he spent two weeks in Canada's worst prison, The Don Jail, for growing "the biggest balcony in the city [Toronto.]" That's just the last two years ... at age 17 he was diagnosed with a then rare condition known as fibromyalgia. In 1997 he became a member of medicinal marijuana clinic Toronto Compassion Center (022).

More than a mere weed writer, his work is best described as weird meets crazy.

For fifteen years, Mernagh has sowed words of freedom for a plethora of publications. Most notably Toronto alt-weekly NOW , Cannabis Culture , ChartAttack and Exclaim. Currently he's CFRB Marijuana Bureau Chief. He's written and ranted extensively about politics, pot and rock 'n' roll. Interviewing a slew of politicians, entertainers and activists along the way. Combined with his own unique adventures.

Currently he's deeply involved in Canada's most extensive constitutional challenge to Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. Lawyer Paul Lewin will begin defending Mernagh Jan. 17, 2011 for growing cannabis for personal use. Mernagh doesn't deny the charge. In fact he's very open about it. Lewin will argue two fundamental pieces of case law, R. v. Parker (use of marijuana as medicine) and R v. Morgentaler (right to choose). Over the course of three weeks, Lewin and Mernagh will take a battle axe to the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. By asking the court to strike down personal production when it is for medical reasons.

Law.Enforcement.Against.Prohibition

 

LEAP - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Founded on March 16, 2002, LEAP is made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies. Those policies have failed, and continue to fail, to effectively address the problems of drug abuse, especially the problems of juvenile drug use, the problems of addiction, and the problems of crime caused by the existence of a criminal black market in drugs.

Although those who speak publicly for LEAP are people from the law enforcement and criminal justice communities, a large number of our supporting members do not have such experience. You don't have to have law enforcement experience to join LEAP.

By continuing to fight the so-called "War on Drugs", the US government has worsened these problems of society instead of alleviating them. A system of regulation and control of these substances (by the government, replacing the current system of control by the black market) would be a less harmful, less costly, more ethical and more effective public policy.

Please consider joining LEAP and helping LEAP to achieve it's goals: 1) to educate the public, the media and policy makers about the failure of current policies, and 2) to restore the public's respect for police, which respect has been greatly diminished by law enforcement's involvement in enforcing drug prohibition.

Relaxation.in.a.Can

 

Read the Full Story on CNN "Everyone is looking for some effect somewhere," said Dr. Matthew Seamon, assistant professor in the College of Pharmacy at Nova Southeastern University.

Beverages such as Malava Novocaine, Drank, Unwind, Mary Jane's Relaxing Soda and Slow Cow (sold in Canada) are marketed as helping people unwind.

"When you are stressed out, normally you'd have a drink," said Matt Moody, founder of Mary Jane's Relaxing Soda. "You can't walk around smelling like vodka all day. I wanted to try to make something you can have to mellow you out. It's not going to make you stumble, fall down and slur your speech. It's a quick fix to slow things down when things get hectic."

Nice.People.Taking.Drugs

 

Nice People Taking Drugs That's the name of a campaign launched by Release, a nonprofit service and advocacy organization in the United Kingdom. The campaign aims to inspire a more honest discussion and approach to drug use in our society and also to highlight the stigma faced by people who use or have used illicit drugs. Release believes that the present regime for the regulation of drugs will be regarded by future generations as one of the great policy disasters of the modern period. These arrangements result in far too many abuses of human rights, fail to protect individual and public health, erode respect for the law, undermine democracy and generate corruption. The War on Drugs is in fact a recipe for a society at war with itself, and this is what we find when we examine the state of global drug control.

Rather than committing to the fantasy of a drug-free world - something that never has existed and never will -we should educate and regulate to restrict their negative effects. Whether this happens through a reinterpretation and reconfiguration of the present structure, or requires a more radical overhauling of institutional and juridical arrangements, remains to be seen.

If you find that StonersR.Us is helpful to you, then you're going to be saving some money on your club runs and gear. We're not asking for the entire savings because then it's not savings! I know I took the hard road learning to become a stoner, so that inspired me to make it easier and fun for people in any way possible. It would be nice if you could donate some of those savings to us so we can pay for our services. We will have advertising revenue in the future to help out, but for now SRU has no source of income. Even if you can't donate money your time is just as valuable.
Sincerely,
Ryan Gonzalez
